"The wind echoes, the heartbeat of the tribes, gentle tunes awaken us with the glistening sun, taking with you the sounds that make it last."
This is what we define the "whistles" made by Akha women around the Mirror Foundation, Chiang Rai province.
Whistles are the new product that was introduced to Akha women. Traditionally, they are not trained in painting. Now with this new handicraft, they are able to make a living with painting. It is now another form of income for them.
